Event | Other

Held each November, it’s an opportunity for everyone with an interest in financial wellbeing to get involved with events and activities across the UK, designed to help people have more open conversations about money.

Here we have brought together resources that focus on the connection between financial well-being and mental health in an effort bring these discussions into the mainstream and normalise conversations about money.

Financial Empowerment

Vestpod

Emilie Bellet is on a mission to financially empower women. On average, women’s pensions are £100,000 less than men’s due to gender pay gap and childcare commitments. There is also a £15 billion gender investment gap in the UK. Emilie strongly believes that we can change these stats. She wants to help women to strive to be more financially independent, to live their lives on their terms, while feeling secure and confident about their present and future.

Read Emilie’s latest book ‘YOU’RE NOT BROKE YOU’RE PRE-RICH‘.

Real Life Money: An Honest Guide to Taking Control of Your Finances by Clare Seal

Part memoir, part guide, Real Life Money takes the reader on a journey that can be adapted to their own pace and circumstances. It will cover everything from how to negotiate repayment terms with creditors and setting realistic budgets without punishing yourself, to dealing with money anxiety. The goal is not to get rich overnight, or to pay off debt at the expense of all of life’s pleasures, but rather to gain an understanding of why we feel the way we do about money, and how we can use that to change our mindset and our finances for good.
